      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Discussion] Roberto Luongo Trade Thread 6.0

Funny how much complaining goes on regarding the Canucks prospect pool, but when you get down to it, when you look at the Canucks vs Leafs prospect pool, even if you disregard the fact the Leafs have been selecting much higher in the draft, I have to say that Morgan Rielly aside there's not a single player I would take one for one for any of Schroeder, Lack, Jensen, Corrado or Gaunce.

So by the sounds of it mg is giving away an elite goalie with a fantastic cap hit away for a third liner at best, a prospect that will never play in the NHL and a 2nd round pick that he'll ultimately use on a terrible prospect

Good point.. I'd be tempted to do Schroeder for Kadri but I'm not entirely convinced Kadri is the better player when this is all said and done.

Gardiner is up there with our prospects as well.

They really don't have anything that I really want. Their first is the most intriguing piece if they won't give up Kadri Gardiner or Reilly

I guess we shall see. I'm with you in the sense that we shouldn't expect the world for Lu. But something like a Bozak, colbourne/finn/biggs/frattin and a conditional 1st would serve us well. The way Gillis operates suggests that he won't lower his price. That's just the kind of guy he is, his demeanor on this trade has literally not shifted a single bit

You realize that TO has as many wins as us, right? We're not the Canucks of old any more.

if gillis can't get what he wants from (the rumors) Toronto and Nonis.

then i say, wait until the off-season, where canucks management thinks that there's like 9 teams that would be interested. if they can't move luongo at that time. then the team is screwed. like, really in big trouble.

Two notes; Huet is of course a free agent. No charge other than contract. So does that mean framework to move a goalie is in place?

But playing in Europe, I'm pretty sure he has to clear waivers. It's almost like you have to pay him a decent wage so he clea"

Sorry man-it was a lame attempt at humour in referencing a pop band from that brutal decade of music, the 80's.

Anyone else getting a good laff out of the Laffs latest?

The whole 'we want Kipper' thing is just a little too contrived.

What part of Kipper's heart isn't in it don't they understand? I won't report. I have a new daughter and a family that is more important to me at this point.

Yet the Leafs keep trying to use him as a bargaining chip in the Luongo lowball saga.

A few problems with that dog and pony show: Kipper's been giving up 5 goals a night on a regular basis.

.873 sv %

His last playoff appearance was in 2008/9 when he had an .884 sv % and 3.52gaa.

The Leafs would rather give up a pick for a disinterested rental, than add a roster player and prospect and get themselves a cornerstone.

That's just too dumb, even for the Laffs.
